Alto Adige in Northern Italy is a magical place, in a glacial valley surrounded by mountains. Due to its proximity to Austria & Germany, it is a mish-mash of several cultures and its wines, food and culture reflect these origins.
Martin Gojer took over his family vineyard, Pranzegg in 2008 and began converting it over to biodynamic farming.
The vineyards are located on terraces above the town of Bolzano; Schiava (called Vernatsch in Alto Adige & Trollinger in Germany), Lagrein, Manzoni Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Viognier are the varieties grown. The results?…. some of the most captivating, exciting wines from the region produced with minimal intervention in the winery. Superb!
